A house that is calling you home

 Guests arrive all the time from all over. One of the things Pamela and I have started to notice is how often we get people coming back that have moved away. They are visiting family or friends that still live here. Or they are showing someone they are with where they were from first hand.

We love Racine Wisconsin. It has been my home for pretty much my whole life and Pamela has lived here for over 40 years herself. It warms our heart when we get guests in that come back and still find our city fabulous and some even say when they retire, they will move back.

Racine has a lot to offer visitors and families that live here. I guess you can, like anything, focus on what is right or focus on what is wrong. We like to look at all the great businesses that are in town, both large and small. We like to look at all the great things to do in the area. All the great art, culture, and community investment programs that we have and the tons and tons of volunteers that stand up every day, week to help their local church, school and the community.

Our house is also a home. I mean, the nature of a bed and breakfast is that it is also a home. That is not what I am talking about. I am talking about Christmas House's past. It was a home then too. To Emily Baker's family, the Horlick family and to tons and tons of student nurses that stayed in Benstead Hall. Now that we are a bed and breakfast, it has become a house that has called its past residents to come home. And we are happy that they are coming to our house and calling it home for their stay here.

Welcome we will make sure your homecoming is GRAND!
